I showed up at the Academy of Sciences waaaay early, expecting a big line for the neighborhood free day, but the place was deserted. A crowd finally started forming just before the museum opened.
I'd forgotten that the first thing you see when you walk in is a big old tyrannosaur skeleton cast.
And now, the skulls! I only had time to draw a fraction of them, so I gravitated to the ones that seemed most bizarre.
Had to do the warthog. So crazy tusks!
I did a bit of drawing in the Africa Hall, but zoo sketching has spoiled me, and I find it pretty dull drawing stuffed animals. I prefer the lively exhibits like the penguin tank.
And finally, the famous white alligator and the subterranean aquarium.
